What is e-invoicing?

E-invoicing enables organisations to send and receive invoices electronically, directly to their software. It removes the need for unnecessary data entry and inaccurate OCR scanning.

E-invoicing in Australia is provided through a network of interoperable Access Points, like MessageXchange, conforming to the PEPPOL standard that has been adopted around the world.

E-invoicing happens through a four-corner model, where corners one and four are the supplier and customer, and corners two and three are Access Points. Access Points connect to each other to exchange e-invoices. You can think of it like a telephone network – your phone and your friend’s phone are corners one and four, and your network provider (like Telstra, Optus or Vodafone) are corners two and three.

What are the benefits of e-invoicing?

  Cost savings

Studies have found that it costs $30.87 to process a paper invoice, $27.67 a PDF invoice, and only $9.18 to process an e-invoice.

 Faster invoice payments

The average e-invoice is processed in 5 days (compared with 23 days for a regular invoice). With a fully automated process, get paid much faster and increase your cash flow.

 Less time and errors

The e-invoicing process removes a lot of manual data entry. It’s a fully-automated process, so you can cut out the time and errors from manually entering invoices. Using our business process management engine, you can automate what used to be a manual process of matching invoices to orders, checking prices and more.
